After three long hard days of mowing two really fabulous things happened: 1. I got paid.

2. I got biscuits and chocolate gravy

Now I know that it sounds gross, but I don't even like chocolate and I love daddy's chocolate gravy! It's just a chocolate sauce to go on biscuits and it reminds me of every special occasion, family gathering, or some times just a Sunday.

Biscuits and chocolate gravy is my comfort food and quite frankly I needed it, because today was the last time I will see my Dad and Cindy for 10 months. I'm still excited, but I think that was my first reality check about actually leaving the country.

Back in Miami tonight. Headed to Ft. Worth tomorrow...Please keep Russ and I in your thoughts and prayers!
